No matter what kind of writing you do, if you are a writer in the East Texas area, we welcome you! We have a lot to offer our members: monthly meetings, workshops, and good old fashioned camaraderie. Have a look around on our site,  then come visit us at our next meeting. We can’t wait to meet you!

Upcoming Meetings

We normally meet 3 times a month. The first Monday is our business meeting, the second Monday is our general meeting when we usually offer a speaker or program relating to writing, editing, publishing, etc. and the third Monday is our Nutz & Boltz meeting which is a more informal time for our members to interact and share helpful information with each other. CTimes and locations usually remain consistent.

 Writing Tip of the week

“Keep your exclamation points under control. You are allowed no more than two or three per 100,000 words of prose. If you have the knack of playing with exclaimers the way Tom Wolfe does, you can throw them in by the handful.” — Elmore Leonard
